The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “Pathology” as “the study of the essential nature of diseases and especially of the structural and functional changes produced by them.” Since it also defines “Medicine” as “the science and art of dealing with the maintenance of health and the prevention, alleviation, or cure of disease,” it is not hard to appreciate that Pathology is an essential, foundational discipline for the entire practice of medicine. This applies equally to clinical care, biomedical research, and medical education.
